Contrary to popular belief (and their whirlwind engagement), Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin reportedly will not be getting married any time soon. According to a report by TMZ, unnamed sources claim that the couple are putting off their wedding until 2019. The sources made sure to clarify that this isn’t because either of them has cold feet. Instead, it’s all about commitment. The sources also told TMZ that their quick engagement wasn’t “jumping the gun.” “Justin’s been in love with her for a long time, so this didn’t just come from out of the blue,” a source told TMZ, adding that they had gotten together a few times outside of public knowledge.
The news comes just four days after Bieber was spotted by TMZ reading a book called The Meaning of Marriage as he left Baldwin’s apartment. When asked why the couple had been photographed crying while going out for a bike ride, Bieber responded, “This,” and pointed to the book. “You’ve got good days and you’ve got bad days. It’s not real if it doesn’t have any bad days.”
Just a month earlier, Us Weekly reported that the pair had already begun planning their wedding. “They want something private, intimate,” a so-called source told Us Weekly, adding that the “very small wedding” would probably be set in Canada. “Justin loves Canada and is at home there. It’s a special place for him and he’d love to get married there.”
Previously, the couple confirmed their engagement on their respective social media accounts after dating for around a month. “Not sure what I did in life to deserve such happiness but I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with!” Baldwin tweeted. “No words could ever express my gratitude.”
Meanwhile, Bieber opted for something that could not be contained within Twitter’s 280-character limit.
“Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you!” he wrote on Instagram. “So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY. I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make. My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first! You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else. You make me so much better and we compliment eachother so well!! Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!. It’s funny because now with you everything seems to make sense! The thing I am most excited for is that my little brother and sister get to see another healthy stable marriage and look for the same!!! Gods timing really is literally perfect, we got engaged on the seventh day of the seventh month, the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection, it’s true GOOGLE IT! Isn’t that nuts? By the way I didn’t plan that, anyways My goodness does feel good to have our future secured! WERE GONNA BE BETTER AT 70 BABY HERE WE GO! “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains FAVOR from the Lord!” This is the year of favor!!!!”
